PHC Blend of Mashbills

I've sampled a few of the other PHCs- the wheater, the cognac finish, and some others I'm not even sure anymore which ones they were.  All were delicious.  This past year I would not miss out, I jumped on 2 bottles of the PHC blend of mashbills ASAP.  It's a mix of a wheated and rye bourbon.  I love my wheated bourbons, and as an EC 18 fan I like the Heaven Hill rye too.  This though, just doesn't work for me. It's been a few months now and I'm just about to kill my first bottle.  Even the fans admit the finish is weak, but for a barrel proofer hovering around 130 proof, it's not just the finish.  This thing lacks flavor!  With proof this high it should be bursting at the seams with... STUFF!  Anything!  I just find this tame and dry.  It's like a dish that needs salt. It's not bad, it's just not special.  For the price and hype, I want special.
